|Largemouth Bass||Most anglers target the deeper water along the points and other offshore structure. Alabama-rigs, suspending jerkbaits, small Texas-rigs, and shakeyheads are typically the most productive lures during the winter.|
|Crappie||For crappie, look for the deep, offshore brush tops in 10 – 20 ft. of water to hold fish. Hair jigs and/or minnows will both produce some bites, but one may out produce the other on any given day, depending on conditions.|
|Bream||For bream, tight lining worms in 10 to 15 feet of water will be the most productive technique during the cold months. The best areas to try are along the dam and just out from the fishing piers.|
|Catfish||The catfish bite will be very slow during the cold season. Target drop-offs and deeper shoreline cover like laydowns with tight lined liver and/or night crawlers. The afternoon hours will be the best time to go, especially on sunny days and the water starts warming up.|
